Brazilian Grape Tree
The Jaboticaba, a native to southern Brazil, is a member of the Myrtle family. The new leaves are pinkish and change to green with a leathery texture.

The botanical name "Cauliflora" means that it bears flowers and fruit on the trunk and mature branches. The trunk and branches become covered with clusters of small white blooms. That eventually develop into dark berries. The thin exfoliating bark creates a mottled appearance on the trunk and branches.

Jaboticaba is frost sensitive and
needs some protection during winter months.
Re-pot only in warm weather

Actually, the ``most correct´´ jaboticaba`s botanical name is Myrciaria Cauliflora, it involves all subspecies, and we have more than four subespecies: The Jabuticaba Sabará, The Jabuticaba Híbrida, The Jabuticaba Paulista etc.
Its correct to say and write Jabutica and Jaboticaba, it doesnt matter :)
The Sabará one is the best species for bonsai, because it leaves are smaller than the other jabuticaba trees.
